Caption: The Foucault pendulum, named after the French physicist Leon Foucault, was conceived as an experiment to demonstrate the rotation of the Earth. It is a tall pendulum free to oscillate in any vertical plane. The direction along which the pendulum swings rotates with time because of Earth's daily rotation.
